19.3 Activities supported by public spending on film The areas of activity supported by public spend on film in the UK in 2012/13 are shown in Table 19.3. As in previous years, film production took the largest share, accounting for £267 million (68% of the total). In a change to 2011/12, education, young people and lifelong learning was second (£32 million or 8%, up from £19.8 million on 2011/12). This increase is largely the result of the implementation of the BFI’s Film Forever strategic plan, one of whose goals is the expansion of opportunities for film education and learning. Distribution and exhibition activity was third with £28 million (7%), followed by film archives and heritage (5%).
